Easy Salmon Avocado Boats
These salmon avocado boats take 5-minutes to make and are jammed packed with protein, (roughly 27 grams) Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, healthy fats, fiber, vitamin D from the salmon and so much more! If you’re nervous to try canned salmon, don’t! It honestly tastes like tuna, and is so much better for you.
This is my go-to pantry lunch when I don’t have a lot of time, but want something that is naturally gluten-free, chock-full of protein, healthy omega-3 fats and fiber. This lunch fills me up for hours, and I personally feel energized after.
Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats, magnesium and potassium, all which support hormonal health.
Fact: our brain is 60% fat, so it needs healthy fat for fuel and brain health, plus fat helps aid with digestion and so much more. So don’t be afraid of healthy fat peeps!
Check out my video to see just how easy this lunch is to make. I created this video on the fly on instagram. I’m on there all of the time, and post more than recipes, so if you want to follow me on there, come on on by.
Below is a sample base recipe, but play around with it and add what tastes good to you. I really posted this recipe to have you all consider trying canned salmon and avocado together. If you’re not into canned salmon, feel free to use tuna. I’ve listed some ideas in the notes below the actual recipe.
